Sir Jeremy Hanley, former British Minister of State

Talal Abu-Ghazaleh is one of the most prominent and intelligent Arab figures I have ever known

“Talal Abu-Ghazaleh is a distinguished man at the global level who can connect with the outside world with notable efficiency and distinction. Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh is one of the most prominent and intelligent Arab figures I have ever known, throughout my work as Minister of State, within the armed forces and as former member of the Cabinet.

In my opinion, he is an ambassador for Arabs and is known worldwide as a self-made Palestinian who believes in laws, respects them, adheres to them, and works toward developing and consolidating regulations and standards related to the accounting profession, which is considered one of the foundations of economy and development in all fields.

Here, I would like to point out that through Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, I became privy to the causes and aspirations of the Arab peoples, and I truly thank him for this. Abu-Ghazaleh was able to describe the Arab region to us in a clear and transparent manner, especially decisive issues that are related to many of the region’s countries. In particular, I mention the Palestinian cause here, which shapes an important part of the life of the Arabs’ ambassador, Mr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh.”
